10% Dearness Allowances and Dearness Relief to state government employees
Bonanza for state govt employees
ITANAGAR, Oct 10: The state government employees have ample reasons again to rejoice as the state government releases 10% Dearness Allowances and Dearness Relief to the pensioners at par with the All India Service raising their DA from existing 35% to 45% w.e.f 1st July 2010. The DA/DR shall be paid in cash to the employees and the pensioners.
It has come as a bonanza for the state government employees just before the Durga Puja which is slated to start from October 13 next.
Government under the leadership of Dorjee Khandu despite acute financial crunch managed to implement the 6th Pay Commission recommendation for its state government employees.
Besides timely release of pending DA/DRs, Khandu Government has recently enhanced the pay of contingency workers considering their length of services in various government departments.
While various developmental activities are being taken up in the state, the release of DA/DR is sure to boost the morale of the state government employees and enthuse upon more zeal and enthusiasm in taking the state to new heights in all fronts. (PRO to CM)
